from the centers for disease control and prevention. adoption of perinatal group b streptococcal disease prevention recommendations by prenatal-care providers--connecticut and minnesota, 1998. 200010836964
perinatal group b streptococcal disease prevention, minnesota.in 2002, revised guidelines for preventing perinatal group b streptococcal disease were published. in 2002, all minnesota providers surveyed reported using a prevention policy. most screen vaginal and rectal specimens at 34-37 weeks of gestation. the use of screening-based methods has increased dramatically since 1998.200516229785
evaluation of the minnesota easy culture system ii bi-plate and tri-plate for identification of common mastitis pathogens in milk.the objective of this study was to validate use of the minnesota easy culture system ii bi-plate and tri-plate (university of minnesota laboratory for udder health, st. paul) to identify common mastitis pathogens in milk. a total of 283 quarter and composite milk samples submitted to the university of minnesota laboratory for udder health during the spring of 2010 were cultured simultaneously using 3 methods: standard laboratory culture (reference method) and the minnesota easy culture system ii ...201424731643
invasive group b streptococcal disease in the elderly, minnesota, usa, 2003-2007.in minnesota, incidence of invasive group b streptococcal disease was 3 times greater in older adults in long-term care facilities than in older adults in community settings (67.7/100,000 vs. 21.4/100,000) during 2003-2007. the overall case-fatality rate was 6.8%, and concurrent conditions were common among both groups.200919751591
field validation of a milk line sampling device for monitoring milk quality and udder health.the objective of this study was to investigate the ability of a milk line sampling device to obtain a representative sample by comparing scc and bacterial culture results between milk line and bulk tank samples for milk harvested from the same group of cows at the same milking. a total of 42 paired milk line and bulk tank samples were collected at separate milking events from 21 different herds. concordance correlation coefficients showed a high level of agreement between the two sample types, w ...200212146478
adoption of perinatal group b streptococcal disease prevention recommendations by prenatal-care providers--connecticut and minnesota, 1998.group b streptococcal (gbs) infections are the leading bacterial cause of serious neonatal disease in the united states (1). in 1996, in collaboration with the american academy of pediatrics and the american college of obstetricians and gynecologists, cdc issued consensus guidelines for preventing perinatal gbs disease (2-4). these guidelines recommend using either a screening-based or a risk-based strategy to identify women who should receive intrapartum antimicrobial prophylaxis. to assess ado ...200010763673
changing epidemiology of group b streptococcal colonization.to define factors influencing vertical transmission of and neonatal colonization with group b streptococci (gbs) in neonates representing ethnically and economically diverse populations, and to determine the serotype distribution of isolates, especially new types iv-viii.199910428995
laboratory practices for prenatal group b streptococcal screening and reporting--connecticut, georgia, and minnesota, 1997-1998.group b streptococcus (gbs) is a leading cause of neonatal sepsis in the united states. cdc, in collaboration with the american college of obstetricians and gynecologists and the american academy of pediatrics, recommends that laboratories adopt optimal screening practices to identify gbs and to promptly report test results so that gbs-colonized pregnant women can receive antibiotics during labor. to assess gbs screening practices in clinical laboratories, state health departments surveyed labor ...199910365633

prevention of perinatal group b streptococcal disease in minnesota: results from a retrospective cohort study and new prevention guidelines.group b streptococcus (gbs) is an important cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in the united states. in 1996, guidelines from the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) recommended that prenatal care providers either screen all pregnant women for gbs carriage and offer intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis (iap) to women who test positive, or offer iap to women who have risk factors for early-onset gbs (eogbs) disease during pregnancy. a recent multi-state retrospective cohort com ...200312959179
